Vijay’s Thoughts on What will cause the “Inflection Point of Digital Media”

Smart phone penetration driven by low cost android devices and availability of mobile broadband in country will create long awaited consumer internet business. Even though Internet applications and content distribution is in place. Adding mobile devices + operator’s charging interface add new scale and sustainability to digital media.

Thinking only for mobile has worked for country and looking forward, it will remain so.
